In case of problems

In case you have strictly followed the above instructions, and you still haven't managed to turn off your iPhone XR? Forced reboot hasn't been of much help. If this is the case, I suggest you contactApple Support.

In particular, I recommend you take your smartphone to one of the many Apple Stores or Apple Authorized Centers, where experts will be able to help you solve the problem. If you do not know where to find an Apple Store, simply connect to the official website, there you can check all the stores available in the city, identifying the closest to your location. If, on the other hand, you are looking for Apple authorized centers, go to official sites of the same, such as R-Store, likewise search for the center closest to you using the available map.

Either way, I recommend that when you go to the store you take with you thesmartphone, theoriginal sales packaging (accessories included) andproof of purchase(ticket), in order to provide the experts with as much information as possible. For more information, please refer to Apple's tips page for preparing your iPhone XR for repair.

In case you are unable to go to an Apple Store in person, you can opt for theApple Courier Service. Once you have connected to the official Apple support website, tap the iPhone icon and select one of the options proposed to you on the screen. To indicate the problem in the function of your iPhone XR (e.g. Repair and physical damage → Inability to turn on). Next, choose the Send for repair option and follow the procedure prompted to complete the operation. However, you should note that when it comes to sending the phone to the company, the shipping costs will be on your behalf.

If, on the other hand, you need to contact Apple support for clarification, you can proceed in the following ways:

  • By phone - call the toll-free live chat number and follow the voice guide instructions. The call is free of charge and the number is active Monday through Friday from 08:00 to 19:45.
  • Chat- Apple's official support website in some cases also offers a live chat to talk to an operator. Typically, wait times are not very long, Apple indicates.
  • Apple Support app- download the Apple Support app on iPhone or iPad, launch it, log in to your Apple ID. Select theiPhone option from the list of devices you want to get help for in the Get Support section, and you will see a list containing numerous items: click on the one you are interested in and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Twitter - visit the verified account @AppleSupport and send them a private message indicating the problems you encountered (in English). In a short time, you should receive a reply.

In any case, I remind you that if you have insured your iPhone XR with AppleCare +, the insurance system of the Cupertino company, you also have coverage against accidental damage, allowing you to have two repairs at a reduced price. If you have not yet taken advantage of this possibility, check if you had made this coverage at the time of purchase. For more details on AppleCare+, take a look at the official page on Apple's website.

However, as far as the standard warranty is concerned, the latter lasts for two years, of which one year is paid by Apple and one year is paid by the retailer of the phone (which can be Apple itself, if you bought the iPhone XR in an Apple Store or on Apple's website).
